NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Board of Regents has approved tuition hikes of between 8 and 11 percent, with the actual increase for each student depending on how many credit hours that student is taking.

The Board also approved a 3 percent cost of living increase for employees at its six universities, 13 two-year colleges and 26 technology centers.

Board Chancellor John Morgan said at the Friday meeting that he doesn't expect tuition hikes to be as much next year, and tuition will probably level off in subsequent years if state revenues continue to increase.

On Thursday, University of Tennessee system trustees approved a 12 percent hike in tuition at the flagship campus in Knoxville and 10 percent increases at the Martin and Chattanooga campuses.
